Italian Conviction of Google Executives Over YouTube Video Overturned

The executives were convicted for not removing a video showing bullying fast enough; it was taken down two hours after authorities alerted Google


An Italian court has overturned the conviction of three Google executives found guilty of breaking Italian law by allowing a video of a bullied teenager to be posted online.

The clip was uploaded in 2006 and had featured a boy with autism.

The employees were given six-month suspended jail sentences in 2010.
